Street Pavement Improvement Project

The City has embarked on a City-Wide Pavement Management Program to improve the overall condition of the City’s streets. The second phase of this five-year effort will be completed this summer.

The goal of the Pavement Management Program is to maintain the city’s pavement in the best condition possible given the funding available. Each year, preventive maintenance treatments are performed on various City streets. These treatment projects are intended to extend the life of the pavement and avoid more costly repair or replacement of streets.

The City received four sealed bids on April 2, 2019 for the Spring/Summer 2019 Street Pavement Improvement Project. The lowest responsible bid was submitted by Joseph J. Albanese, Inc and was awarded the construction on contract during the April 16, 2019 the City Council meeting.  

The Spring/Summer 2019 Street Pavement Improvement Project consists of various forms of pavement maintenance treatments on 18 different streets. The project includes grinding and sweeping existing pavement, dig-out repair, patching, crack sealing, cape sealing, micro-surfacing, leveling course, asphalt overlay, adjusting utility boxes, monuments and manholes, traffic control, and painting of pavement markings.

Work on this project was substantially completed in June 2019.

City-Wide Pavement Management Program

In January 2017 the City received the Pavement Management Budget Options Report which led to the adoption of a Fiscal Year 2017-2018 Pavement Management Program (PMP) and a five-year PMP financing plan to raise the overall condition of the City’s roadway pavement from “fair” to “good.” Staff is currently working on an update to this plan to be completed in early 2020.

The City uses StreetSaver®, a Pavement Management Software, to monitor pavement conditions, help prioritize streets requiring resurfacing, and estimate costs of treatments and rehabilitation. StreetSaver® uses Pavement Condition Index (PCI) to classify roads based on their condition. The PCI scale rate all streets from 0 to 100 (poor to excellent condition), depending on severity of pavement distress. Currently the City of Monte Sereno’s PCI average is 63, which is considered fair. PCI values are one of the many factors used by StreetSaver® to help identify the appropriate resurfacing treatment for a given road.

Summer 2019 Neighborhood Street Improvement Project

The City received four sealed bids on August 8, 2019 for the 2019 Neighborhood Street Improvement Project. The lowest responsible bid was submitted by McKim Corporation and was awarded the construction on contract during the August 20, 2019 the City Council meeting.

McKim Corporation will perform roadway improvements on Palos Verdes Drive, Via Vaquero, Equestrian Way consisting of: concrete curb, gutter and driveway conform, digouts, asphalt concrete grinding and paving, adjustment of utilities and monuments to grade, pavement markings and striping.

A Community Informational Meeting will be held Wednesday, September 4, 2019 from 5:30PM – 6:30PM at Monte Sereno City Hall. This meeting will provide an opportunity for residents to meet representatives of McKim Corporation, hear more about the work, and answer any questions.

Past Projects

The 2018 Blanchard Drive Pilot Improvement Project consisted of the installation of frontage improvements and the resurfacing of the street along its entire length. The inclusion of the frontage improvements will greatly sustain the life of the roadway surface improvements.
